SUMMARY

"You will love Paula Matter’s delightful debut mystery.  Her misfit heroine will win your heart and keep you guessing with her determined efforts to find the truth and clear her name."—Victoria Thompson, Bestselling author of Murder on Union Square
 
"Paula Matter has woven a wonderfully fun and quirky debut in Last Call with a cast of characters you’ll want to hang out with for years to come. Maggie is both vulnerable and spunky as she struggles to make it on her own…with a little help from her friends. She’ll break your heart and have you laughing out loud!"—Annette Dashofy, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Zoe Chambers Mysteries
 
"Raise your glass to Paula Matter for creating Maggie, a positively intoxicating bartender in North DeSoto, Florida. Take one heart of gold, pour in a jigger of observant, add a splash of smart-mouthy, and you have a new detective worth savoring."—Nancy Martin, author of the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries
 
"Last Call is 'Cheers' with bodies, set in North Florida, with Carla tending bar. Smart, funny. You’ll want to run a tab." —Hallie Ephron, New York Times bestselling author of You’ll Never Know, Dear
 
"Matter's debut provides...a heroine who's not only feisty, but...downright funny as well."—Kirkus Reviews
 
A bartender at a Florida VFW has to clear her name or she'll be serving time instead of drinks

Bartender Maggie Lewis can't hold her beer, her tongue, or her temper. On a bad day at work she'd love to kill a customer or two. On a very bad day she becomes the primary suspect accused of doing just that.

Suspended from her job after being set up for the murder of Korean war veteran Jack Hoffman, Maggie has no intention of letting herself be framed. And since the police have yet to arrest anybody for the last major crime in town—the murder of Maggie's husband—she's sure they won't try too hard to collar the real culprit. So Maggie must produce enough evidence to clear her name, get her job back, and find the killer before she ends up behind the wrong kind of bars.
